The estate’s top scorer, the Cru “Vigna Manapetra” deserves special mention: a Brunello produced from a single vineyard, 100% Sangiovese, planted in a very specific terroir, totally enclosed in the estate’s lands in Montalcino, characterized by draining soils naturally limiting the yields and giving a unique quality to the Sangiovese grapes. The Brunello “Vigna Manapetra” is a limited and exclusive production of Fattoria la Lecciaia.
The Sangiovese mono-varietal offer is completed by the quintessential Montalcino wines of Fattoria La Lecciaia: Brunello and Rosso, and with an IGT wine, called “Millenium”: produced with grapes grown in the same vineyards and transformed with the same winemaking/ageing techniques used for the traditional Brunello. This wine, marketed as an IGT, offers the possibility to taste the most iconic wine of Tuscany at an affordable price.

Another tradition of the area is the supertuscan: Il Baccanale is Fattoria la Lecciaia’s premium blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, both produced from grapes handpicked on the estate’s vineyards in Montalcino and aged in oak casks (for the Sangiovese) and barriques (for the Cabernet Sauvignon).
Then comes the eclecticism of the wines produced from the estate’s vineyards in Maremma:
The DOC Montecucco is widely recognized as one of the upcoming stars of Tuscan enology. Issued by a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot, this wine is considered of reference for a modern interpretation of the Tuscan quality wine scenario.
The range is then completed by several IGT wines from coastal Tuscany, with a really interesting quality/price ratio: red mono-varietal wines (Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon) or blends and also a white wine made with Vermentino grapes.
